BSH Hausgeräte GmbH, one of the globally leading companies in the home appliance sector, has developed an innovative laundry scanner based on sensor technology from Spectral Engines, a Finnish innovator of material sensing technologies. The two companies collaborated to create a device called X-Spect, an intelligent connected scanner for recognizing different fabric types and stains at home. X-Spect makes common household decisions easier, safer and more exciting by providing washing and pre-treatment recommendations for any garment or stain type. After scanning the textiles, the wireless device can automatically transfer the recommended settings to BSH’s range of connected washing machines. The secret behind X-Spect is its sensor technology from Spectral Engines that determines which fabrics you are washing, and how best to get rid of any stains.
